Miami-Dade has a new rule for people who want a rapid COVID antigen test

Anyone who is planning to get an antigen rapid test at a Miami-Dade County-run testing site will now also be required to get a PCR test, which is more accurate in detecting early COVID infections but takes slightly longer to process results.

The change, which kicked in Thursday amid high testing demand, was recommended by Miami-Dade County Chief Medical Officer Dr. Peter Paige to ensure people get the most accurate test results possible, county spokeswoman Natalia Jaramillo said Friday in an email to the Miami Herald. Both tests will be administered during the same appointment.

People who want a PCR test will not be required to get an antigen test, according to Miami New Times, which first reported on the updated policy.
